Tri-haiku XXVIII (Healing)

by Jem Croucher

With no abandon
to a mediocrity
I wait with patience

Hasten the mending
the healing of wounds and ills
Bring back spring to step

For I am waiting
Breath bated, coiled to move
to those hills again

Tri-haiku XXVI (patience)

by Jem Croucher

Earlier it comes
every year it seems to me
Sunshine and Christmas

And yet I still wait
as anticipation grows
until the right time

The waiting is good
as all good things come to those
with rewarding here

Emotional Deluge

by pranabaxom

I wrote this poem in my mother tongue, Axomiya(Assamese) a few days back and posted in my blog ( on July 26, 2018.  I have a few Bengali friends from my college days with whom I share my poems.  Whenever I share a poem written in Assamese with them, I try to translate that to Bengali for their benefit. I do not claim any strength in writing in Bengali.  So if any of my reader finds my Bengali translation inadequate, I apologise.  Constructive criticism is appreciated as that will help me to improve my translation skill in future.

I translated the poem to English and sharing all the three versions here, English followed by the original Assamese and then the Bengali translation.

If I am swept away someday
In an emotional deluge
Please stand by me
Be my rock
A pillar of patience

There’s a room for me here
but not the one I want.
The room I’ve chosen is not available.

Compliments of the season

by Jem Croucher


Winter’s warming finally here
with cinnamon and sage
a promise to fruition
comes swiftly to assuage
Laughter’s distant echo
growing louder all the time
to compliment the season
in its presence here, sublime

Framed by last night and tomorrow

The Current of Knowing



Wait till the dark hinges upon this window

Till the burning oil runs low and

The bread of that day has been eaten…


There is mystery in my soul,

Beauty I left unattended to when the day

Swung its hand across my face…

Astounding Assemblage

by timzauto

Astounding Science Fiction, October 1953

Astounding Science Fiction, October 1953 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It was so smooth to the touch
built with talent , patience and such
a family prize , passed down with pride
it was sleek , fast , a dream ride
astounding assemblage indeed
had every thing our baby needs
this carriage was a century old
smoothly down streets it rolled
the time will come sooner or later
I wait for the day we pass it to daughter.
